three weeks in Valencia

I went to Valencia with a friend to help children aged from 8 to 10 do there homework. We were spending aproximatly 4 hours each day with the same class. But obviously the children weren't studying this long. I learnt to play the 1,2,3 ball game and a few others with the boys. I used to draw a lot with girls, but we also listened to music, took pictures, visited the garden in the school...
I couldn't speak Spanish fluently, but well enough to understand each other and share unforgattable moments. I hope I will be back in Valencia soon.

How can this program be improved?
The social could be improved. Make the differents volunteers meet with each other by organizing small events as simple as going in a cafe.
Yes, I recommend

A great and fruitful stay in Beautiful Denia, Spain!

I had a great volunteering experience in Spain Marine Project, 2014.
Each day, we had different job to do. We cleaned the beach, the trails, the mountains, the ocean...etc. while enjoyed the natural beauty of Mt. Mongo and the mediterranean sea. Detection of the invasive plants and had broaden my view for new species.

The forest fire control and prevention is also an important thing to do since it had it's worst drought in Denia the year. I had a wonderful stay in Denia, with its unforgettable beautiful nature scene.

How can this program be improved?
It was good to me, actually. I couldn't found anything that need to be improved so far.
Yes, I recommend
